July 24-28, 2021
Greater & Greener 2021: Philadelphia, PA
Presented in partnership with Philadelphia Parks & Recreation and Fairmount Park Conservancy
The Greater & Greener biennial conference explores how urban parks can be designed, developed, programmed, funded, and sustained to meet the challenges facing 21st-century cities. The COVID-19 pandemic has elevated a national dialogue on the essential role of parks in our cities, and Greater & Greener will continue to lead this conversation by bringing together experts to share lessons, network across sectors, and engage together. We continue planning for our in-person conference in Philadelphia in July of 2021, with weekend tours, mobile workshops, and breakout sessions, however, we are considering a number of contingency plans involving a variety of virtual and in-person formats.

- Six years ago I stumbled upon Greater & Greener and City Parks Alliance's websites, and six months later I attended Greater & Greener 2012 in New York. Greater & Greener changed my life, and I hope the conference inspires many to change the lives of others in their communities.Luis Romahn Asociación Nacional de Parques y Recreación
